Hortonworks announced on Thursday that they have acquired XA Secure. Hortonworks has plans to open source Hadoop security layer. This acquisition moves Hortonworks towards the delivery of comprehensive security of Hadoop.


According to the announcement, the adoption by enterprise and developments in Hadoop have changed management and security needs. Apache Hadoop YARN allows for multiple workloads to run on the same architecture but what is missing is a top-down comprehensive review of security needs across different platforms.

Hortonworks plans to use XA Security technology in HDP Security which is expected to be available in late June. It will also reveal its capabilities on the upcoming Hadoop Summit.
